PharmaDiagnostics Logo

PharmaDiagnostics’ SoPRano™ technology enables label-free, homogeneous high through-put screening on a standard plate-reader.
Based on Localised Surface Plasmon Resonance (LSPR), a variant of the proven SPR technology, SoPRano™ assays use solutions of specifically derivatized gold nanoparticles that exhibit a specific and quantifiable absorbance change when a ligand interacts with a surface coupled protein. This enables sensitive, robust and reproducible high-throughput screening assays to be easily developed and run on standard laboratory equipment, delivering high quality interaction affinities.
SoPRano™ has diverse applications in both protein and small molecule screening, including receptor-ligand binding, enzymatic reactions and ADME. The technology is well suited to fragment screening with excellent sensitivity for low Mwt molecules.
SoPRano™ technology is available for assay development and high-throughput screening applications both as easy to use kits for in-house use and through customized services. Kits and services are also available for a range of ADME and physico-chemical properties.
